The Transformation of Public Economics Research: 1970-2000

Author

  • Feldstein, Martin

Abstract

The nature and content of research and teaching in public economics have changed enormously during the past three decades. The field is more theoretically rigorous, more empirical, more focused on real policy issues, and more concerned with government spending as well as with taxation. For me, it has been an exciting time to be a public finance economist and to contribute to this intellectual transformation.
